I recently – ok it’s been awhile, probably back in November – had the opportunity to review the Step 360 product/program. It was created by fitness celebrity Jessie Pavelka.
He took an old idea – step aerobics – and put a new spin on it. From the website:
More than two decades ago the original Step changed the way millions of people worked out. Now the Step360 is set to transform fitness once again. The secret: A revolutionary design that marries two adjustable air-filled chambers with a flat, padded platform. It’s one part ab machine, one part butt blaster, one part thigh trimmer and a total-body training tool. You’ll burn hundreds of calories each workout while firming your muscles and flattening your abs.

Who This Product is Suitable For
Definitely not me and anyone weighing more than 300 lbs (the weight limit is 300).
I think if you’re smaller, have good balance, great core muscles and like doing step aerobics this is right up your alley.
I had a horrible time trying to review this product! It was so hard for me to use. The platform was moving around too much & I just couldn’t keep my balance. The exercises were really hard. Again, that’s because I couldn’t keep my balance. My son certainly had a good laugh that’s for sure I feel like I can’t give the Step 360 a fair review because it was so difficult for me.
I’m also up in the air about the price. Don’t get me wrong – you get a ton of stuff but if you’re looking for something inexpensive this isn’t it. It’s $119.96 (+ $19.99 s&h). Is it worth the price? Again, I feel like I can’t give a fair answer on that because I wasn’t able to use the product very much.
One last thing. There was so much product (DVD’s, the ‘vitamin’ things – which I did NOT use and won’t because I’m kind of skeptical about things like that – the stretch band, etc) that I don’t think I gave the Step 360 a fair enough try. It was so overwhelming and I didn’t know where to begin so I just picked an exercise and started. I think to be really fair about the product review it would take a lot longer than I gave it!
So, I’m not giving it a thumbs up or a thumbs down. I’m in the middle on this one.
